Gone are the days where video is deemed a ‘nice to have’ in a marketer’s strategy. Brand goals and company size aside, this powerful medium is one that is required in today’s digital landscape to connect on a meaningful level. However, there are numerous challenges to making quality video at scale including lack of time and money. This especially holds true for small businesses.
Vimeo is harnessing the power of video and making this medium accessible to businesses of all sizes. Most recently, the company launched a short-form, high-impact, video creation tool, Vimeo Create. Designed to be intuitive and easy-to-use, Vimeo Create is a brand new resource for making high-impact social videos, in minutes.
HOW IT WORKS
With Vimeo Create, available on desktop and as an app, businesses are able to choose from pre-made, professionally curated video templates customizable to their specific needs. Alternatively, more advanced users can take the experimenting even further by opting to start a new video from scratch, integrating their own video footage or selecting from millions of stock photos, videos and royalty-free music.
After the video is finalized, marketers can automatically tailor the content for each of their social channels in distinct versions depending on the format and aspect ratios needed: square, vertical or horizontal. Specifically, sharing is available across Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn
